Valentine’s + Chinese New Year = Hug-a-Palooza Day!

It was an exciting Sunday afternoon especially if you were in a wonderful place like Enchanted Kingdom to celebrate the loveliest event of the year and one of the noisiest and most colourful celebrations in the land – the Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year.

It’s very rare to happen where we celebrate two important occasions in one day, and Enchanted Kingdom made it more exciting and lovelier as they brought the first Hug-a-Palooza event in the country.

Hug-a-Palooza was derived from the Love-a-Palooza event where couples kiss each other. And because of the recent viruses and to make this event “for everybody”, they made it a huggable one where even singles, like I and some of my friends, can enjoy the sweet occasion of Valentine’s Day.

Thank God that it was a sunny Sunday. I and the rest of my blogger friends had a really fun day enjoying rides, watching wonderful performances, eating delicious dishes inside the theme park, grooving to the music of the guest band of Enchanted Kingdom, buying some souvenir stuff, taking pictures to different beautiful spots and lastly, wowing to the spectacular fireworks displayed in the clear starry night of Sta. Rosa Laguna.

The main event of the day was hosted by Mr. Tirso Cruz III, who also had a wonderful day at Enchanted Kingdom with his family, and Enchanted Kingdom’s Vice President for Sales Miss Cynthia Mamon.

And as the 6,476 theme park goers, including me, hugged to the end of the countdown, we also witnessed more of the spectacular sky-lightning fireworks.

 Princess Victoria and Eldar graced the event.

It was, indeed, a fun and loving day for all the couples, family and single people! I had so much fun here in Enchanted Kingdom, AS ALWAYS!

From the bloggers, “Happy Valentine’s Day!” 

Happy Hearts' Day!

And from Enchanted Kingdom’s Eldar, “Have a Prosperous, loving and huggable New Year to all!”

See you again next year, Enchanted Kingdom and let’s set another world record!
Wee! Group hug! Thank you!

Hello, Alex! Na-confuse lang ako ng konti, Cynthia Mamon ba or Cynthia Carrion?

Alex De Vera Dizon said...

Cynthia Mamon. Yan din ang sinabi ni Tirso eh, at mukhang tama naman. Bakit? Sino ba si Cynthia Carrion?
